Twitter and Facebook


Cindy pointed out to me in my last blog that she would follow me on Twitter and Facebook but I left no links. DOH! I knew I forgot something. The only problem here is that I am Twitter illiterate. I've got the account and have some followers and followees and have no idea what to do with it. I think I need to have a sit down with Daron Fraley for some serious tutoring into Twitteropian. In the meantime, if you want to find me on Twitter I go by karenehoover. All one word, and don't forget the 'e' in the middle.

Facebook, now, that I can do. I am pretty good at Facebook, so here's the link to my fan page and that you should just be able to click a button up at the top that says "Become a Fan." Simple enough.And that link would be HERE. If I've forgotten anything else, just let me know and I'll fix it.

On another note, my website is nearly completed. I got a peek at it last night and it is looking really nice. It has a lot of celtic elements, which I love, so now it's just a matter of tweaking it before we release it to the world. I'll have a big announcement and maybe a drawing when it's set up for good. It's been mostly quiet around here today. Had to miss church AGAIN because son number two decided to spend three hours throwing up last night. Of course by the time this morning rolls around he was fine, but it was too late by then. *sigh* What is it with all the adversity with going to church lately? It is super frustrating. Hopefully that will ease up soon. I hope and PRAY it will ease up soon.

I'm jumping on board the Money Monday train in the hopes that my tax return comes tomorrow. :) Thanks Candace for the lovely tag that has Manic Monday stuck in my head. Well, that's it for today. Down to a little over a week before the book comes out. It's so hard to believe! It's just around the corner. Hope to see as many of you as I can at one of the book launch parties. I am blessed to get not one, but TWO of them. The first is for all five of us Valor authors who will launch that day and it will be at the Gateway Barnes and Noble in Salt Lake on March 16th from 6:00 to 8:30. The second will be at The Purple Cow in Tooele on March 20th from 1:00 to 4:00. They are both going to be a blast, with food, reading, music, and book signing, so come join me for one of them and be sure to tell me hi and that you follow my blog. I'd love to meet you!

And in the meantime, don't forget to read my previous post and enter the contest! Believe me, you'll love the prizes. :)

I've also been trying to figure out twitter--still mostly foreign.

I can't believe the book launch is coming up so fast!! Cool, but scary.

I know! For me too. My friend Stacy said it's like a combination between Christmas morning and getting called to the principle's office. lol She's not wrong. Can't wait to read your book!

You can leave a link to your twitter profile, which makes it easy to follow you. ;) All you need to do is visit your profile page (after a search even) and use that as your html link. I leave mine in my sidebar. A

Also, when it comes to twitter, the BEST tool for me is Tweetdeck. I'd never survive twitter without it. Plus, it links to your facebook at the same time if you like. =] I love it.

Congratulations on the two launches. Be prepared to see me at both! Can't wait!

:) We'll have to talk twitter before the book launch. I'll be there early. Judging by your excitement, I'll bet you will be too.

Yeah, twitter is one of those things I do, but wish I didn't. Hope you got your tax return!
